I think they cite examples like this in small business books and the
solution in those is that you're probably not looking at the right
customer/market. You don't give them the solution before they give you the

Situations like this are why businesses who sell "Make money folding
envelopes at home" actually make money. I knew a young woman who wanted to
start a home business so bad she paid $80 for rubbish like this. As horrible
as it sounds, now is probably ripe for something like this with so many
people being laid off. More and more people are going to try the home
business route just out of sheer numbers.
